Dumb Shit 2018
One was once a magnanimous fan of Disney and Tim Burton, with that said: fuck Disney and fuck Tim Burton too. Disney has bought the once virtuous beautiful girl Star Wars, and has turned her into the cheapest dirtiest two-dollar prostitute selling her to any five-year-old kid who will pay for her services. She will be ruined in a matter of years if she already is not. Thank George Lucas for selling his prized-child to the highest bidder for human trafficking. Speaking of directors, Tim Burton made marvelous gems like Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas. He followed those with Planet of the Shit, whored himself to do Charlie and the Shit Factory and most recently Dumb Shit. Tim Burton has not made a quality Tim Burton film for a long time, but one is pretty sure he is still an A-list director and a multi-millionaire. The reader should not watch Dumb Shit because: it was poorly casted and acted; it was boring as shit; but although it was a horrible movie, the computer animation was incredible.
When one was watching this movie, one thought Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter would be perfect for this movie. After many Tim Burton flops, they seemed to have jumped ship and started saying “no” to Tim Burton. What was exactly wrong with the acting? Did they act poorly? No they did not. Did they give an Oscar-award winning performance? No they did not. They neither acted poorly nor amazingly: they just acted moderately. This average acting contributed greatly to the intense boredom of this movie.
One took a pretty substantial nap during the movie. The movie was extremely boring because of the acting, the story, and the direction. Disney takes a basic cartoon movie and tries to morph it into a live action Hollywood colossus, Disney is going to have some difficulty. One thinks that the original Dumbo story was lacking to begin with, although the character is cute and loveable. So, Disney has a pile of shit twenty years ago, and they try to make that pile of shit modern by putting some flowers around it and decorating it with glitter. Deep down at the core, it is still a pile of shit. The pace of the movie was slow, with nothing happening throughout. It just dragged on and on: long shots of boringness. Even with all these negative points, there was still one amazing point.
One was watching this and tried to figure out how they managed to find an elephant with such big ears. Then the elephant started flying and one convinced himself that this was indeed amazing computer animation. The whole movie one was trying to figure out if that was a real freak elephant or if it was computer animation. It was so lifelike and detailed: it was alive. One hopes they win an Oscar for this so this movie would not have been a complete loss. But then again, they would keep on churning out more shit like this.
Here’s the score: Disney is one for two. Beauty and the Beast was good, Dumbo was not. They are coming out with Aladdin next with Will Smith as the genie. One saw the preview and Will Smith did not look as bad as one thought. If Robin Williams did not fucking kill himself, one would not mind seeing a fat old man genie in real life. One thinks the hyperactivity and physical comedy of Robin Williams would have shined on the big screen, although he would have been a grumpy old man by this point. One hopes they will try their best not to ruin classic Disney movies with sub-standard pieces of shit in the future.
